Auto Technology Certificates

The Automotive Department offers three levels of certificates which allow students to gain the technical training required to achieve A.S.E Master Technician Certification in steps. Each level of certificate provides the training and knowledge required to prepare for up to three areas of A.S.E. Certification. The Maintenance and Light Repair Certificate (MLR) can be completed in six to nine months and gives students the knowledge and skills necessary to enter the automotive repair industry quickly. The Automotive Service Technician Certificate (AST) allows the student who has completed the MLR Certificate to expand their training and prepare for additional A.S.E. Certifications. The Master Automotive Service Technician Certificate (MAST) provides an additional certificate for the student who has completed the AST Certificate and is seeking the training and knowledge necessary to prepare for the remaining A.S.E. certifications required for Master Certification status and Advanced Engine Performance Certification. Students may be able to begin the next level certificate as they are finishing the previous level. Since these certificates are part of the Automotive Technology Degree program, certificate completers can continue their education in the college degree program at any time.
